Sadly, learning how to relax has always been on my bucket list. This whole semester has felt like a brief stint in mental rehab, and I have finally learned the true sense of the word “relaxation” thanks to a little trip to the south of Spain.
I sadly did start to miss the weekly Thursday gathering of the masses outside of half of Dryden Road so I decided to find a Mecca of my own for the drip-sweating, red-faced, wide-eyed twenty-somethings here in Paris.
